This really is one of the original Species Hybrid Pelargonium dating back to the 18th century. An upright habit with soft almost downy leaves. The flowers are the brightest scarlet with a black blaze on the upper petals.  It still makes an excellent plant for the summer after all this time.

Plants are supplied in a 6cm biodegradable pot. There is no need to remove this pot as roots will grow thorough it and the pot, which is made of fibre, will degrade harmlessly into the compost.
